However it is not all bad news as the style of the film holds up very well, the strong primary colours used do no exhibit any blooming or bleed and appear well saturated. The film uses quick cutting techniques and it appears solid with no signs of encoding problems or digital artefacts. The super close ups used on faces also holds up well with plenty of detail on show.
Overall the image appears sharp and detailed with good colour reproduction and only a few small niggles to worry about, not a bad effort at all.
The surrounds do occasionally come to life using music and other effects to create an enveloping feel, providing an effective sense of ambiance. Music is also very strong with excellent clarity and dynamics and quite a heavy LFE presence.
Overall this is not an aggressive mix, but sounds just right for this type of feature creating an ambient feel.
A very enjoyable sting movie with excellent performances and direction, presented on a good disc which has some interesting extras.
